Sweet Potato Pecan Bars

Directions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine butter and the 1/4 cup sugar. Stir in graham cracker crumbs and the 3 tablespoons pecans until well-combined. Press onto bottom of a lightly greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly (5 minutes) while preparing filling.
  2. For filling, in a large bowl stir together beaten eggs, mashed sweet potatoes, and sour cream. Stir in the 1/2 cup sugar, the flour, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon until smooth. Stir in milk. Pour sweet potato mixture over prebaked crust, spreading evenly. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 25 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately sprinkle with remaining chopped nuts; press lightly into filling. Cool completely. Cut into bars about 2x1-1/2-inches. Cover and store in refrigerator up to 24 hours. Makes 36 bars.

It looks like small marshmallows melted on top, under the pecans.Were they left out of the recipe?

Are you using real sweet potatoes, or yams?
